Hi all,

A related question: How do you just update the readme.txt so that the 
"Tested up to: 3.2" line can be updated? It seems silly to have to 
upgrade to a whole new version number just to change form 3.1.x to 
3.2 in the readme.txt.

I'm using SVNx. I committed the change yesterday, and it shows in the 
plugin log at http://plugins.trac.wordpress.org/log/ but on the 
plugin page at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ still says 
"3.1.4" Thanks very much, Mike
